Discrimination between cases of hip fracture and controls is improved by hip structural analysis compared to areal bone mineral density. An ex vivo study of the femoral neck.

Abstract:

In vivo bone densitometry is affected by measurement inaccuracies arising from the assumptions made about soft tissue and marrow composition. This study tested the hypothesis that section modulus (SM, a measure of bending resistance) when measured ex vivo, would discriminate cases of hip fracture from controls better than areal bone mineral density (aBMD). The biopsies were from (n = 22, female) subjects that had suffered an intracapsular hip fracture. The control material (n = 24, female) wa...
